Is Working in Corporate Wellness Right for You?

Health Coach Brenda Sillas Shares How To Break Into the Space

Brenda Sillas Notable Quotes

“There are so many other options and opportunities…I think the sweet spot is marrying the health coach’s specific interest and just helping them position that interest to a huge problem that the employer has. So the more that the health coach can be curious and open to learning more about what the real problem is, the better.”
Brenda Sillas
